Yet another day, yet another Marvel show suffering demise. Netflix's latest spree of canceling Marvel shows to and fro shocked many but there still are some worthy contenders on other platforms that hold the Marvel baton.
Unfortunately, one of them is set to suffer the same fate as its Netflix counterparts and that show is Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, The drama aired a long time ago and has spawned six good seasons so far but only recently it was revealed that the pug has been pulled and its upcoming 7th season will be the show's last.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series, starring Clark Gregg and Ming Na, scored an early renewal back in November — ahead of its sixth season — as the last order of business for then-ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey.While the series will sign off with a whimper, that is far from how the drama started. Agents of SHIELD was Marvel's first venture into live-action primetime scripted programming and helped usher in a new era of comic book TV shows for the Disney-owned media giant. Ahead of its debut, every casting was met with the highest of expectations and excitement. However, the series debuted to lackluster numbers that quickly declined, as many in the fanboy crowd were expecting an experience similar to the Marvel Cinematic Universe on the company's feature side.
